Chicken Tortilla Soup

Perfect one-pot meal

-Julie Ryan Evans

I love tortilla soup, and over the years I’ve tried about a bazillion recipes searching for just the right one. For me this one is pretty close – not too thick and heavy, not too chunky, but a light flavorful soup enhanced by the toppings.

Ingredients:

½ cup diced onion
1 clove chopped garlic
2 Tablespoons of olive oil
4 cups of chicken broth
¼ cup red bell pepper chopped
1 Tablespoon of ground red chiles
¾ teaspoon of dried basil
15 ounces of tomato puree
2 cups of cooked and chopped chicken

Salt and pepper to taste

Toppings (any or all of the following – although I would say the avocado chunks are mandatory!):

Shredded cheese (sharp white cheddar or Monterey jack are good)
Avocado chunks
Sour cream
Crunchy tortilla strips

Directions:

Sautee onions and garlic in olive oil until soft, then stir in the rest of the ingredients except the chicken. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for at least 30 minutes. About 5 minutes before serving add chopped chicken so that it heats through. Ladle into bowls and add desired toppings.
